Ok, here's a new one. Was working on cleaning up my collection yesterday and all looked ok, Today many of the boxsets are duplicated. Both copies have the same metadata and get the data from the same file.

here's an example of what I mean

I tried to Vacuum database and restarted, but did not help.

Can I reinstall the Boxsets plugin without deleting all my collections?

just adding new custom collections and deleting some old ones. Was fine yesterday.

I also moved the location of the collections to another folder.

The metadata has the same info and file location in both collections.

How can I clean this up?

 

In case you need it I just attached the embyserver log

Attached Files

That may have played a role. What exactly did you move?

The files were originally in E:\video\(genre) where (genre) was, ie Comedy for Austin Powers movies.

Then they were moved to E:\movies\collections\collection name ie. Austin Powers

Now the final resting place is E:\movies\(Decade) where (decade) is 1990's for the Austin Powers movies

 

So how do I fix it?

How do I make the database start over with the collections listed in programdata/data/collections. Some of the listings there are not in the collections display.

 

Can I just delete the library.db and let it recreate everything? But the only thing I changed were the movies location. All of them are in a different folder now. And all the movies listing look fine, just the collections are messed up.

I was able to fix the collection by deleting both duplicate collections, then moving back the collections XML file and rescaning the collection. lets see if it is ok tomorrow.

@dcol So all you moved were the video files?
